The money is not the only problem.  When you self-sign a certificate
you make it to last 10 years and forget about it.  When you buy an
official certificate (and don't pay hundreds of euro/dollar) it will
expire in a year and you need to go through the hassle of renewing
and reinstalling it every year :-(
